Jose Mourinho has urged his Manchester United players to channel the "anger" of conceding late against Chelsea into their Champions League clash with Juventus on Tuesday night.

United currently sit second in Group G - two points behind Juventus - ahead of their double-header with the Serie A champions.

The goalless draw against Valencia earlier this month consigned Mourinho to a fourth consecutive home game without a win for the first time in his managerial career.

Forward Alexis Sanchez has been ruled out of Manchester United's Champions League encounter against Juventus.

The 29-year-old Chilean appeared as a late substitute in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Chelsea but is "not fit", according to boss Jose Mourinho.

Defender Antonio Valencia could feature for the first time since 2 October after an operation on his mouth.

Juventus are set to start with Cristiano Ronaldo, who spent six years at Old Trafford between 2003-2009.

It will be the 33-year-old's first Champions League appearance since he was sent off against Valencia on 19 September.

However, the champions of Italy will be without Croatia forward Mario Mandzukic, former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can and midfielder Sami Khedira.

Speaking about Valencia's recent absence, Mourinho said: "He had a problem - and had very complicated surgery on his mouth.

"He needed time to recover. It is the reason he was 10 days without training."

Ronaldo has scored five goals and provided two assists in his six Champions League games against sides he's previously played for. This includes a goal in both of his appearances against United in the competition.
